the first frost and a few more things..'s been getting coooold here lately. Seems like Winter is (unfortunately) coming quick this year. I woke up (early!!..because that darn day lights savings messed up my alarm..) to a crisp cold frost that was covering my yard. I have been a big fan of shooting from the ground since last months digital photo challenge so I went outside to experiment a little. Yea, it could be a bit more exciting if there was something else in the grass..but I'm still diggin' the teeny-tiny focal plane.
I use to be scared/creeped out by cemeteries. I never walked on the grass across a grave. Even use to hold my breathe as we drove past one (I don't really remember why we would do that..). Thank goodness I am over that now because it never ceases to amaze me how there is something beautiful about every cemetery. I went and explored God's Acre in Old Salem today. Some how, even though I have been to Old Salem and God's Acre dozens of times, I had never been past the flat white graves that were in the front..I didn't even know another section existed. Well, I found it. And it was bea-uuuuu-tiful. These pictures don't even really do it justice..but it was cold out (remember..the frost!) and we had the baby with us, so we just did a brisk walk through. I will definitely be going back.

I just thought these pretty much summed up Fall...

If you haven't already, you should go ahead and sign up for this months photo hunt's only 10 words this month. I have two words down so far..I think. Here's a sneak peek of one of my words..


And I almost forgot!..I have my work for sale at another location now.. IDEAS at 606 Burke Street, Winston-Salem has 4 of my framed photographs up. This Interior Design Studio/Shop is an awesome space with lots of gorgeous things inside..everything from cushy chairs, to kitchen knick-knacks to hand-made jewlery to my photographs! I really just want to live inside of the store. You should really go check this place's just fun to look at everything if nothing else.
